Indefinite Defiace



Conceptual piece.
In consistent defiance of the natural order, he-who-we-don’t-say-his-name-not-even-in-the-winter’s horns drip upward, as the blood drips down.

In retrospect, I was bothered that I painted in the wrong Miigis- it was a Cowrie shell I had to depict, and not a clam. While the Cowrie is symbolic to the female, the clam is to the male; I think because the original being that stopped him was male, I made that association. That, and the clam shell is the first I think of when I think of shells… however, it is the Mide Miigis that possesses the spiritual capacity to be used as medicine. Either way, it should have been only a shard/s, and that would not have been visually clear as to what it was.

Concepts are more about me thinking, rather than execution… so even thought it’s not 100% accurate, I tend to look at it as a catharsis rather than technical output.
